Pre-construction work begins on 227-home East Kilbride development

PRE-CONSTRUCTION work is underway on Taylor Wimpey West Scotland’s build of 227 homes off Jackton Road in East Kilbride.

The development forms part of the East Kilbride community growth area (EKCGA), with planning consent for the build being secured in June 2021 from South Lanarkshire Council.

It will see the delivery of a mix of two and three bedroom terrace and semi-detached homes, as well as three and four bedroom detached properties. The firm added that the development has been designed to create a ‘sense of place’ and maximise the Scottish Government planning policy for designing streets.

The development will also benefit from the delivery of key infrastructure as part of the masterplan vision for the EKCGA such as new roads – which are already under construction, as well as a new primary school and retail provision. 

Caroline Proctor, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said, “We are very pleased that our pre-construction works at Amble Court off Jackton Road, have started. This latest milestone for our Amble Court development cements our commitment to bringing new homes to this thriving new community that is emerging on the western edge of East Kilbride.

“And while playing our part in the delivery of new homes within the EKCGA and its masterplan, our development will also provide a range of economic benefits for the local area, which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses.”
